- Boeing’s (NYSE:BA) first U.S. flight of the 737 MAX since the aircraft was grounded nearly two years ago reportedly was mostly full today, and American Airlines (NASDAQ:AAL) President Robert Isom was among the passengers.
- American flight 718 departed Miami International Airport around 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday and landed at New York’s LaGuardia Airport at 1:10 p.m., marking the start of American’s plans to gradually return the MAX to service.
- American is announcing aircraft types during boarding to make sure passengers know they will be on a MAX, and the company said nobody rebooked today due to concerns about flying on the plane.
- In an interview, American COO David Seymour told WSJ that the carrier would not have returned the plane to service if its pilots and flight attendants were not confident in it.
- United (NASDAQ:UAL) plans to resume MAX flights on Feb. 11, and Southwest (NYSE:LUV) plans to put the plane back into service in March; Southwest reportedly says a minority of customers have expressed discomfort about the plane, although the company their comfort levels will improve as the MAX flies more.
- The Federal Aviation Administration will increase oversight of aircraft manufacturers, require disclosures of critical safety information and provide new whistleblower protections, according to new reforms signed this week by Pres. Trump.
